    I was on a road trio and was enjoying my sansa for a whole day! the next day at night while returning home, i tried to turn on my sansa e250 but the screen lit up in white and had some weird black shapes near the bottom of the screen! the unit will turn off in 10 seconds if the user doen't press any button...

    is my screen cracked or broken or is something wrong with the hardware?

You can fix the problem by having the original sansa files when you format it it deletes everything
get a friends sansa files or do this
and just because it would be a pain looking for the original files i uploaded here for people who deleted them put these files into a folder named

DATA http://www.divshare.com/download/4002990-1d7

WMDRMPD http://www.divshare.com/download/4003086-013

REFS--no files

and put them in into 1 folder named SYSTEM--make it hidden then put it on sansa

then create a music folder make it hidden

then create photo folder with thumbnail and my album folder make my album hidden

then create pictures folder make it hidden

then create playlists folder make it hidden put this file in it

When i turn on my sony mp3 and press music library, then the screen said no data, when i put few songs into it and open it again and the result still the same..what should i do??


Format it everytime you want to add songs. The little memory module inside gets confused often as to how much data it can hold. So always format it first.

It sound like similar problem I had with Coby MPC896 playing only 27 songs of...


I have a stunning new breakthrough on the frequently cited problem - "I cannot add any more songs to my Mp3 Player." Before we proceed, I am assuming that the reason you cannot add any more files has nothing to do with available memory space. Of course, if your Mp3 player is full, it will not accept any more songs. But, I am assuming that this is not your problem.
Apparently, if you add too many folders, especially via Playlist, via Windows Media Player, the Mp3 player's file system will become unstable - it can only handle a certain number of additional folders.

To resolve the issue:

1. Connect the player to the PC using the USB cable.
2. Open Windows Media Player.
3. Go to the Sync or Devices tab and delete all content from the player.
4. Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
5. Select the Devices tab, highlight the ILO or Siren player and click on Properties.
6. Uncheck the box "Create Folder Hierarchy on Device"

Now, when music is transferred, it will be placed in the root directory of the flash memory disregarding the folder structure and allowing all tracks to be seen.

This procedure was designed for Siren Mp3 players, but is applicable to many other Mp3 players. It is not a guaranteed fix for every Mp3 player and every error of this type, but it is certainly not a widely known or reported solution. i hope that this benefits many Mp3 player owners who are experiencing this issue.

Hello,

Assuming the player is charged. (For charging always connect directly to the computer, not through a reader or hub).
When buttons on the player do not react, reset the player:
Disconnect the player from the computer.
See that the HOLD button is not engaged.
Gently push the RESET button on the rear side: use a narrow pointed
object, like a paperclip.

Did synchronization of the songs in Windows Media Player fail ?
For transferring songs, check in Windows Media Player:
1. The player is detected in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
2. Setup the Library / Add to Library: add the location of songs you want to transfer in the library.
3. Create Playlist; give the list a name and put songs in a playlist
4. Sync Playlist: transfer the list of songs onto the player and wait for the message until you're allowed to disconnect.

MP3 player is frozen,and we need to download CD disk in order to add more music.


Hi, can you please elaborate more on it.
what cd areyou trying to download, is it the main software for the mp3 player? or is it to just download music.

Is it a cd/mp3 player all in one?

Can you tell me which model number you have?

In your pc, if you open up windows media player, you can put in any audio cd and you can rip them to MP3 format. It will automatically save them to the library and then you can burn which ever songs from the library.

When you insert an audio cd you can automatically rip.
Click the rip button at the top and an option box shows, and rip the cd.
you can select the bit rate, this is the quality of the rip, the lower the number the poorer the quality but smaller file size, so you can fit more on a cd.
Click on format and make sure it's on MP3.

Put a blank cd in and click and drag any songs onto the play list.
You could add full audio cd's onto the black cd that have been converted to MP3, so you could fit a fair few albums.

If you need more help, please ask.

If this has helped you then could you please leave feedback.

Downloading of CD's to MP3 Player


Are you trying to synch tracks directly from a CD. If you are, you first have to rip the tracks. In windows Media player, you first need to setup the type of file you want to rip to (MP3 in this case). Right click on the top bar of the WMP and select Tools|Options. Select the Rip tab and under the rip settings, change the format to MP3. Select the quality you want (higher quality means less music can be stored on your unit). 192 kbps is a good setting. Now, click OK or apply as appropriate to get out of the menu. Insert your CD and click on the RIP tab of WMP. Your CD's tracks should automatically come up with checks marks beside them. Start the RIP process. Once it is complete, you can then drag the newly ripped files from your library to the Walkman and they should be synched.

How can I stop my 8gb clip automatically downloading my library i do not want all my library on my clip


1) Connect your Clip to your PC.

2) If Windows Media Player doesn't run automatically, run it.

3) On the left side of Windows Media Player, right-click on your Clip and select "Set Up Sync".

4) If you don't want songs to be synced automatically to your Clip when you connect it, uncheck "Sync this device automatically."

5) If you do want songs to be synced automatically, but not your entire library, check "Sync this device automatically", then click on the playlists you DON'T want to sync under the "Playlists to sync" list, and then click on the "Remove" button.

How do you download music on it for free


Get Limewire - make sure your anti-virus software is up-to-date.
When you find songs on Limewire, notice that not every song they have is in Mp3 format - only download the songs that are in mp3 format.
Caution: Some ISP's will suspend your service if you use Limewire.

Other options are Frostwire (make sure your anti-virus software is strong) and Morpheus.

Once the songs are downloaded, go into Windows Media Player --> run the mouse over the Library tab --> a little black arrow will appear underneath the Library tab, click on it --> click on the "Add to Library" option and add your "Limewire Downloads" folder to the list of folders that Windows Media Player searches - it will add all of the songs from that folder to Windows Media Player.

Then use the Sync tab to transfer songs from your computer to your Sansa Clip.

I would highly NOT reccomend the free route, but there it is.

The thing wont stop telling me to refresh the library


Depends on the model # and manufacturer of your mp3 player. Some players do not recognize DRM-encrypted music files. I would re-download the songs in mp3 format only.
